CMT To Launch ‘CMT Hot 20 Countdown’ in January

CMT will ring in 2013 with a new series to count down the Top 20 country music videos and cover the top stories in country music.

CMT Hot 20 Countdown will launch on Jan. 5 at 10:30 a.m. CT on CMT. CMT’s Cody Alan, Alecia Davis and Katie Cook will host the weekly, two-and-a-half hour series. The series will also feature in-studio live performances and interviews with both established and up-and-coming artists.

CMT Hot 20 Countdown will be taped in front of a live audience at its new location at the Music City Tower, just outside the Bridgestone Arena at the corner of 5th and Broadway.

Fan participation will be an essential component of the new show, as they will be able to interact with the hosts via social media integration on Twitter (using the hashtag #CMTHot20), Facebook and Instagram. Those interested in becoming part of the live, studio audience can email [email protected] for details.
